Cancer of the cervix

The majority of the cancers of the cervix arise from the lining covering (epithelium) of the neck of the womb and are squamous carcinomas (85-90%of all cases). A minority of cases of cancer of the cervix have adenocarcinomas that arise from the glands of the lining of the neck of the womb, and occasionally there are features of both types visible down the microscope (adenosquamous type).
